Almost to the exact day as last year, the Mets find themselves again on the verge of elimination at the hands of the Florida Marlins.

Why Doesn’t Anyone Blame David Wright?

An article by posted on September 19, 2008

I love David Wright as much as the next Mets fan (okay, maybe even more) but he seems to be immune to any blame for the Mets current affairs. I got excited as David finally reached the .300 mark last week and I cried when David entered a 1-for-18 slide that puts his current average […]

The Hot and The (Mostly) Not

An article by posted on July 5, 2008

Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. If you would have asked me last week, I would have said our most frustrating loss was the 11-0 blowout to Seattle. This morning, I would say yesterday’s loss to the Phillies would go down as our most frustrating. Since Willie Randolph left, we’ve moved up to […]

Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. This week was an interseting one in Mets Nation. After losing 2 out of three to the MLB worst Mariners, the Mets really picked up their game against the Yankees. Despite the 9-0 loss in the second game, the Mets offense did manage to get on base. […]

A Truly Metsian Dilemma

An article by posted on June 20, 2008

Okay-it doesn’t need to be said again, but the Mets could have handled Willie Randolph’s termination a little bit…okay a lot…better. Like not letting him on the plane to Anaheim better. For something we all knew was going to happen one way or another, the Mets certainly found a way to shock us and even […]
